Emblem 3 and Vino both claim to have original music, let them do it. Even if they don't write their own songs, let them sing songs of the style they choose.
I don't understand at all why they do these gimmick nights on every singing competition?
Yeah I agree mostly. That's why a show like American Idol or AGT is better in a way because the contestants get to pick what they perform each week and the judges are just there to judge and not advise like on X-Factor and The Voice. I feel bad for Vino because LA Reid made a mistake with his song and he was in the bottom 3 of the fan vote and eliminated and just a week before he was in the top 3 of the fan vote. As I'm typing this American Idol has that producer Jimmy Lovine who advises all of the contestants but he doesn't dictate the artist's songs like they do on X-Factor and The Voice. I've seen him change the song at times but I think it's mostly on the contestants.
